Add A Splash Of “Millennial Pink” To Your Next Gin And Tonic Drink

Tonic water has always been the underdog to gin, but in recent years its been given a flavour make-over. The drink has become more diverse across the globe, with the addition of lemongrass, pomegranate and even chocolate flavoured tonic.

The trend for tinkering with a much-loved drink by introducing ‘artisan’ flavours began when small distilleries started to make new brands of gin, like Hope on Hopkins Mediterranean Gin and Triple Three Citrus Infused Gin — challenging giants such as Gordon’s.

In South Africa, the Fitch & Leedes brand is a market leader. The company’s portfolio boosts a variety of bespoke flavoured mixers and tonics, with the latest being a new Rose and Cucumber Pink Tonic. This new generation tonic is made with quadruple filtered water, purely to accompany gin without masking the flavour.
